By the Light of the Halloween Moon

In this "catchy, lilting cumulative tale with glorious comical/scary illustrations" (Kirkus Reviews), a little girl's toe taps a tune as her legs dangle from a footbridge that has all sorts of creatures hidden underneath. There are cats and witches, bats and ghosts. With lots of repetition, a rhythmic, bouncy text, and imaginative illustrations, this Halloween title is sure to tickle your bones -- your funny bones, that is! And for the first time in over a decade, this Halloween gem is back in print.

"The pileup of menacing monsters and the close calls build tension until the complete picture of a self-assured little girl appears. Her fully capitalized expression of proprietary rights will assure readers that she knows how to take care of herself. The final scene, in which she fiddles a Halloween tune for the dancing monsters, creates a comic resolution, making the night a time of fun as well as near-terror." -- Ruth K. Macdonald, School Library Journal
